Resilient seat gate valves for water supply pipelines
Resilient seat gate valves are suitable for pipelines transporting drinking, raw or waste water with a temperature no higher than 60°C. The gate valves and the components that come into contact with drinking water comply with standard EN 1074-2 and the drinking water regulations of many countries respectively.
Composed of strong and durable ductile iron, resilient seat gate valves operate in two different ways:
When fully opened: the gate completely frees the corresponding part of the valve’s body, allowing a passage of fluid; and
When completely closed: the gate rests on its seat in the body of the gate valve, stopping the flow of fluid in the pipeline with total watertightness.
